Adobe Acrobat / Re: Errant Object in Preview

Make them sign off on a physical proof and not a pdf.
Random Technology / Wyze and Google Nest Home
September 07, 2023, 01:14:55 PM
There's a cross promotion going on right now between Wyze and Google Nest Home. (There's also this). You can get a 7" Google Home smartscreen and an indoor/outdoor video surveilance camera for $79.99 (50% off). Google Home integrates with ADT and if you have Wyze it does that (and Arlo). I dropped Xfinity ($165/mo for 2gb cable internet, home phone and alarm/monitoring) to get Fidium ($69.99/mo for home phone and 2gb fibre-optic internet but no alarm) and I have 5 Arlo cams and 4 Wyze cams and Google Home monitors it all. I have Arlo cloud recording and Wyze SD recording and I programmed Home, Away and Night time modes with push alerts. If I'm Away from Home and something trips a camera, I get video immediately (and recorded) and I can 1-touch activate an alarm/call for help. 

I also have a Ring doorbell and motion floodlight, but Google Home doesn't integrate with Ring.

Let's keep it to prepress. My weight gain is due to a change in medication, thank you.
Adobe Acrobat / Re: Acrobat looks like Win7 on Win10?

I know there's an issue with the order of plug-in installation. You can search this forum for that post, but you have to do Pitstop first, then Quite (or vice-versa - I really can't remember). I had Pitstop, PDFLib Blocks, Quite and FusionPro all installed in plug-ins, and there was a certain order you had to add them or it would go wonky.

[edit] Found it here:

these things always weigh a ton, I think they make them out of lead or something

They are made to stay put during a tornado or hurricane.
That didn't work out so well for DCS. Didn't he find his across the street, down in a river or something?
Adobe Acrobat / Re: Recombining separated PDF's
August 09, 2023, 11:56:36 PM
Quote from: Joe on August 09, 2023, 04:31:13 PMHave you tried placing the 4 seps on the same page in InDesign and setting the background for each as transparent when you import it and then exporting as a PDF? I have not tried it but it seems like it should work.
Ditto this, but also, shouldn't each layer also be set to overprint, and layered in press order? Assuming of course, the separated PDF is a) NOT Trapped or b) Trapped perfectly. It'd be like an electronic color key.

Is the Kodak user forum still around? I forget what it was called, but maybe some user hanging around can help out...
Enfocus / Re: Switch Update Woes
August 07, 2023, 05:04:47 PM
You have a Nintendo Switch at work? Cool!
In a known good empty ink cartridge, razor blade down the label, split the cartridge open and remove empty bag of ink. Take the new unchipped cartridge and do the same. Place it in the old, good, cartridge, snap together and use. That used to work on our Iris (Epson ink was cheaper than Iris branded ink, but the Iris was a rebranded Epson with different tabs on the plastic cartridges).

I asked ChatGPT to write me a script for Robocop vs Terminator. It wrote a pretty nice plot outline.

I don't know anything at all about XMF.

I'm just bored, and wanted to be included in the conversation.

SmartStream sounds stupid.

Did you try in the preferences checking the, "not stupid," box?
